This is an elegant Houmongi
Kimono with vibrant 'Karabana'(imaginary flower in China) design, which is dyed.
Brightness of gold glazing adds extra elegance to it.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded collar).
*The background color may look uneven in the photos but actual color is one tone just as HTML color.
It has a rather noticeable linear fray on the bottom of the left front panel.(D)
The wear is whitish and rather slight.
Although not shown on the figure, it has an about 6cm(2.3in) linear weaving flaw and a small stain on the collar of the left front panel. You can confirm them with the photo (A).
Although not shown on the figure and the photo, it also has a small stain on the collar of the right front panel. (It can be hidden when worn.)
The rather prominent whitish stain like discoloration is spreading near the kamon(family crest). (J)
The discoloration of the left front panel is not disturbing.
Also, the 'Douura' (upper lining) is quite slightly discolored.
It has some other flaws.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
If you don't mind those flaws, it is still in very good condition to wear.
Please enjoy its elegant design!
